THE RANCH:
We are located at the base of the Sierra Nevada
mountains near Reno, NV.  Our introduction to
Nigerian Dwarf Goats bloomed into a passion had
by the entire family. We chose Nigerian Dwarfs
because they produce delicious milk and stay small
(around 21" tall) which makes it easy to keep them
on small acreage. They are easily handled by
children and they come in just about any color or
combination of colors you can imagine! Nigerian
Dwarfs have wonderful personalities and while
they are the smallest dairy goat breed, they hold
their own in milk production.

OUR GOATS:
We are members of ADGA (American Dairy Goat
Association) and AGS (American Goat Society) and
all of our herd members are registerable through
NDGA (Nigerian Dwarf Goat Association) as well.  
For more about us at Sierra Aspen Ranch please
click on the
About Us page.  We take our goats to
as many shows as possible each year and
participate in ADGA Linear Appraisal.

ABOUT DISEASE:
We test annually for CAE, CL and Johnes prior to
breeding each year. Our whole herd tested
NEGATIVE 10/11/13!  Visitors are welcome any
time by appointment. We encourage potential goat
owners to visit prior to purchase if possible. We
ask that you respect our concerns regarding
biosecurity when visiting. We vaccinate annually
for CD/T. Since we are in a mineral deficient
zone, we supplement according to their needs.

OUR GOAL:
Our goal is to raise and breed healthy show quality
kids who excel in dairy character and milk
production.  Each year we will have several
wethers and on occasion may have non-show
quality does available to pet homes. Please see the
Kidding Schedule for pricing and more
information. We have invested in top quality
Nigerian Dwarfs from herds all over the country
and provide the best feed and care possible.
